Course information

This course is aimed at anyone wishing to work at sea, whether on a commercial vessel, super or mega yacht, workboats, ferries, cruise liners, offshore etc.

Our students range from existing seafarers, security operatives, stewardesses, chefs, deckhands, wind farm operatives.

Courses are delivered with a mixture of theory and practically based exercises. The emphasis is on realism. All courses are delivered by extremely experienced instructors all of whom are serving or ex-fire service officers, with a maritime background having served at maritime training centres in the UK and Europe.

The Basic Safety Training course comprises of 4 modules:

  • Personal Survival Techniques (STCW A-VI/1-1)

  • Fire Prevention & Fire Fighting (STCW A-VI/1-2)

  • Elementary First Aid (STCW A-VI/1-3)

  • Personal Safety & Social Responsibility (STCW A-V1/1-4)

Seafarers now also require Proficiency in Security Awareness (STCW A-VI/6-1), which is an additional certification. However, we include this course into our Basic Safety Training week for free. This means that when our students complete the 5 day BST course with us, they will have gained all of the basic certifications required to work on a vessel.

Please be advised that there is a minimum number of students required for the course to run.
